The Wood Foundation supports young people from the North-east of Scotland to volunteer overseas for life-changing and developmental experiences.

Our Volunteering Overseas fund supports young people to make a difference, developing their global citizenship by supporting communities while developing their own skillsets.

Applications, available on this page, are accepted from:

  • Individuals local to the North-east of Scotland
  • Those taking part in a project that builds capacity of the community without displacement of local employment or business
  • Those who will share their experiences and learnings upon return
